For those who have not completed games in the Xenoblade Chronicles series, this page contains spoilers regarding the plot. Discretion is advised.
Galea (Japanese: ガラテア, Garatea, lit. Galatea) is a character who appears in Xenoblade Chronicles 2. She was a co-worker of the scientist Klaus on Rhadamanthus, one of the Orbit Stations. As Klaus' co-worker, she is only viewed unnamed during a flashback cutscene in Xenoblade Chronicles, however her reincarnation in this universe is called Meyneth.
During the attack on Rhadamanthus in the twenty-first century, Klaus, one of the scientists of the station, who had blocked all communications with the Conduit, wanted to use it in order to create a new universe, both as a final effort to protect the station from the attackers and as the final hope he had for mankind, who he had lost faith in.
Galea, who did not agree with Klaus' intentions, tried to stop him. Klaus, however, activated the Conduit anyway, opening numerous portals to other dimensions across the planet. Galea, alongside half of Klaus' body, ended up in a new universe, where she was reborn as Meyneth, the soul of the Mechonis.
- "Professor, no! The results have not been confirmed! It's too dangerous!"
- "Are you serious? Do you even fully understand that thing?"
- "You're delusional... "Divine entity"? The Conduit is nothing more than a meta-universe manifold!"
- "Stop! Klaus!"
The Japanese name is likely a reference to Galatea, the statue which was famously carved by Pygmalion, who then fell in love with her, and subsequently brought to life by Aphrodite. The English name is likely a shortening of the Japanese name.
